The recruitment process


In the recruitment process, we'll be looking to see whether you have the skills outlined above. So if you're invited for interview, it's important that you prepare for it. This will help ensure you are confident and articulate on the day.


The recruitment process involves you completing an online application and questionnaire, plus a values-based telephone interview (HSBC values are Dependable, Open and Connected), as well as a face-to-face interview. Interviews are competency-based, which means we'll be asking you to talk about specific instances where you have displayed the qualities needed to succeed in the role. It's really worth having a think about the kind of examples you might give us before the interview.


Also remember - if, for whatever reason, you're unsuccessful, you cannot reapply, or apply for the same role at a new location, within six months of your application. You can, however, apply for an entirely different job within HSBC.

Whichever role or location you apply for, the process will be broken down into the following stages:

1) Find a vacancy & apply

The first step is to search for an appropriate vacancy and complete a simple application form via our website. This will first require you to agree to the terms and conditions of your application before asking for basic information about yourself, as well as your CV or an account of your recent work experience. Do not rush this stage. Even though it shouldn't take long to complete, allow yourself plenty of time to get it right.

2) Job match profile

You'll then need to complete a job match profile online. Typically, you'll receive instructions on how to undertake this questionnaire within 48 hours of your initial application.

3) Telephone interview

The next step is a 30-40 minute telephone interview based around the key skills required for the role you've applied for. Taking place at a time to suit you, this will examine your motivations for the role together with your communication skills.

4) Credit check

An important part of the application process, this check will include CCJs, bankruptcy and delinquent debts registered (e.g. defaulted on payments to a loan which has not been paid in full). Full details on this are contained within the terms and conditions of your application.

5) Final interview

The final stage of the process is a face-to-face interview or selection centre. Typically, this appointment will last around one hour, and will again focus on how your skills and experiences match with our requirements. It will also give you an opportunity to ask any questions you have about the role and HSBC.
You'll be advised of our decision within seven days of the interview or selection centre. If you are successful, you'll then be invited to join an initial induction course that will tell you all you need to know about a career with HSBC.

6) Criminal Record Search

As we process your application, we will also need to see a Criminal Records Disclosure report for you. Having a criminal record does not necessarily mean that you won't get the job. This will depend on the nature of the position you're applying for, together with the circumstances and the background of any offences.

7) Referencing

All our offers will be subject to satisfactory pre-employment references. While we're preparing your contract and terms and conditions of employment, we'll begin obtaining references.
